Real Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup victory against Sevilla was the Los Blancos’ 78th official title and they have now equalled Barcelona’s achievements.
Barcelona previously held the record for most silverware in its trophy cabinet but as Marca reports, Real have now levelled their bitter rivals.
Real have now won 3 Intercontinental Cups, 10 European Cups (Champions League), 2 UEFA Cups, 2 European Super Cups, 32 La Liga titles, 19 Copa del Reys, 9 Spanish Super Cups and 1 League Cup.
Barcelona, meanwhile, have won 2 Club World Cups, 4 European Cups, 4 Cup Winner’s Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 4 European Super Cups, 22 La Liga titles, 26 Copa del Reys, 11 Spanish Super Cups and 2 League Cups.
Real secured their first piece of silverware in 1905 when they beat Athletic Club 1-0 in the Copa del Rey and had their most successful era in the 1950s when they won the European Cup in five consecutive years.
However, they had fallen behind the Blaugrana when Pep Guardiola guided the Catalan giants to 14 trophies in just four years.
But Ancelotti’s arrival has given Real a fresh influx of trophies. The Italian has already won three trophies since arriving at Bernabeu last summer, which are as many as Jose Mourinho had won in three years.
Real have their next chance to win silverware when they face La Liga champions in the Spanish Super Cup, with the first leg taking place next week Tuesday.
